Wonderful Wednesday: Lilly News!

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I grew up in and around all things Lilly.  That was a great time in Palm Beach, and Miss Betty was buying Lilly's when Mrs. Pulitzer (later Mrs. Rousseau) was selling her creations on the beach and later in her cute little shop off Worth Avenue.

Did you know that there is a new Lilly book?  It will be coming out in July, and I will be down in Palm Beach that month, so am very excited to be able to get it from my favorite County Road bookstore (The Classic Bookshop....located near Hamburger Heaven) while I am there!  You can pre-order at Amazon or Barnes and Noble, too!  Enjoy!

At The Movies (Cold Indoor Winter Version)

I have been watching a lot of movies this week, as I have been indoors with Younger Daughter.  This is one I wanted to mention, because it is extraordinary.  If you haven't seen Sarah's Key yet, be sure to do so.

Be Back Soon

Younger Daughter has been quite ill this week, so I am concentrating on her and not blogging.  Thanks for your patience and understanding....See you soon!

Monday At The Movies: Golden Globe Edition

If you have been reading my latest posts, you know I am over-the-moon about The Artist and Jean DuJardin winning!!

KentonMagazine.com
I thought this was a rather elegant Golden Globes, too....very "old school"....and you know that's my thing!!  Loved Kate Beckinsdale's look!

Check out some great photos on Kenton Magazine.com 
InStyle.com

Helen Mirren was magnificent as well....and wears her age beautifully.  I love this picture of her from InStyle.com.  She is not over injected or cut on (if at all) and is always well-turned out. 

(Meryl Streep, although a great actress, really "missed" last night, though.  Her character in The Devil Wears Prada would have been appalled!!)

Friday Find: Must See Movie

I went to the first showing of The Artist this afternoon.  It. Was. Magnificent.

Go, go, GO see this movie!!!  It is just wonderful...and Jean Dujardin is the most handsome leading man to come along in ages.  He is so "old school" handsome....in a Clark Gable kind of way.  Perfect casting!

It deserves so many awards....sure hope it wins some!!

Here's an interview with Jean and his leading lady, Berenice....

Tuesday Thoughts Of Spring

I know, I know....It's just January.....but already my mind is turning to Spring...and then Summer!!!  That's my absolutely favorite time of year!

India Hicks recently tweeted that she really wasn't into wearing a lot of color, but a recent shoot with Coldwater Creek changed her mind.  I love some of their Spring looks....especially the ones at the end of the video.  (And India looks great....Island living must be THE way to go!)

Monday Musings: Time Away

"Good Night, Moon" was Younger Daughter's favorite book....and when she was born, the internet was just catching on....Look how far we have come in 15 years or so.

Sometimes it's a little "too much"....so in honor of that, I am stepping away from the computer, iPad, iPhone, etc.....at least for a little while. See you later...

Love this satirical video!!

Special Sunday Post

It speaks for itself....a choir that was on board an Air Tran flight that was delayed for a maintenance check. Wish every flight I was on started out this way!! Thank you, Indiana Wesleyan University Chorale!

Friday Find

I found this online and am just in love with this Schlumberger piece! Aquamarine is my birthstone, so this would be an ideal piece to add to my collection. Now, I just need to win the lottery! LOL

Tuesday Thoughts: Time To Get Ready

Recommitted to eating right and exercising....and looking forward to this wonderful annual Richmond Healthy Lifestyle Expo.  It will be even more fun this year, because my dear friend and houseguest will be one of their celebrity guests!  Better get that yoga mat out and practice before the big day!

Monday At The Movies




Some time ago, I wrote about one of my favorite movies.....Which sadly is not out on DVD (yet!).

Well, tonight's the night!!  TCM is showing it....so set your DVR's now.  I want to grow up and be just like Ethel Barrymore's character!

Happy New Year's Day, everyone!

January 1st is a very special day to me.  On this day, 98 years ago, a precious baby boy was born.


He grew up...

and became my Daddy!


He went to heaven in 1998, but he will be with me forever! 
Love you, Daddy!  Happy Birthday from your "Libbus"
